European Markets for Prosthetic Vascular Grafts

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

Many large and growing diseases, such as diabetes, cause vessel damage calling for replacement vascular grafts. The European market for prosthetic vascular grafts is today a $343 million industry and growing, according to "The European Prosthetic Vascular Grafts Market," a report just issued y Medtech Insight.

In Vascular Disease, a Sustainable Model for Cell Therapy

If there's one word that ought to sum up the goal of cell therapy today, it's sustainability. Certainly that's the hope of using living cells to restore health and function to diseased tissues so that they perform as the body intended them to. But more to the point, in today's tough financing environment for venture-capital-backed start-ups, sustainability is the watchword for companies facing 15- to 20-year development curves. Tissue-engineered three-dimensional organs are complex, decades-long projects. Embryonic stem cells are much simpler in concept but are far from a commercial reality. Between those two extremes of tissue-engineering, however, there exist some well-defined opportunities, notably in the treatment of blood vessel disease. Start-ups Pervasis and Cytograft are gaining clinical validation in those areas.

Cytograft's New Lifeline for Vascular Surgery

The creation of durable vascular grafts has been a tantalizing objective for multitudes of companies and research efforts that have applied all the disciplines of medical science to it: tissue engineering, cell-therapies, biomaterials, drugs, and combinations of all of those technologies, but without much success. The complexities of creating a functional structure with biological properties has foiled many a research effort. But now Cytograft Tissue Engineering has a new take on tissue engineering. Cytograft produces a living conduit with the handling properties of a native vessel, built exclusively from the patient's own cells. Unlike previous approaches, Cytograft's Lifeline vascular graft does not require synthetic materials or exogenous scaffolds.

Remote Site Visits Will Help US FDA Keep Reviews On Track As Pandemic Constraints Continue

Guidance discusses what are generically called virtual inspections, but which the agency terms “remote interactive evaluations.” As site inspections remain constrained by the pandemic, remote interactive evaluations “should help FDA operate within normal timeframes,” the document says.
